Community Meeting on Communications

Your opinion counts! Join MACC for its next Community Meeting to shape the 2010 Communications Plan!  If you live or do business in the neighborhood you are invited, whether or not you are a MACC member. This will be a facilitated discussion to prioritize the input collected from the neighborhood in this process and come to consensus on what the MACC 2010 communications priorities should be based on YOUR input. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 2010 6-8 p.m. at the VFW at 1820 Morningside Avenue. Light refreshments provided by MACC. Door prizes, too!  Tickets to the Kelly Strayhorn Theater and MORE!!

Background. . .

Exciting developments are underway in Morningside – popular seasonal activities, new businesses, new residents, the development of the Morningside Elementary School and so much more! MACC wants to more effectively communicate – to each other as well as to the broader Pittsburgh community — about Morningside and its many assets.

MACC encourages the involvement and input of all! The communications strategy will be built by you and for you through a series of interactive methods with multiple opportunities for the community to come together, provide insights and ideas about communications. We will work toward consensus on how we communicate about Morningside

The process started in March. Twenty-six Morningside neighbors – from 10 different streets in Morningside — participated in community meetings held on March 20 and 24 at the VFW. In addition, several others were interviewed by phone.  See the report on those meetings.

The Summary Report from the March meetings is posted on the MACC Web site and is also attached for your review. It captures key points concerning MACC communications expressed by residents at the meetings.
